I had a young man come in the other day who was involved in an automobile accident and wanted to know what he should do. There are several things that must be done.
1. Notify Local Government
The first thing that must be done is to notify the local government agency, whether that be the police, Department of Public Safety, or the local sheriff’s office.
2. Seek Medical Attention
The second thing that must be done is to seek immediate medical attention. This not only involves going to the hospital but also seeking additional medical help from your personal medical provider. This is important because when you typically go to the hospital, they’re looking at life and death situations. At the end of the hospital visit, they will tell you to go see another doctor. It’s important that you follow up to make sure you see that other doctor because there may be injuries that have gone untreated at the hospital and they can properly examine that.
3. Hire an Experienced Lawyer
The last thing is it’s important to hire a lawyer who is experienced in handling automobile accidents because then they can make sure everything that needs to be done is done. For example, was an investigation done? There may need to be measurements taken at the scene of the accident. An expert may need to be hired to determine the speed of the other vehicle or the speed of your vehicle. An experienced lawyer can help with all of this. If you have any questions, please contact us.
